A student at New Hampshire’s Bedford High School objected to an assigned book critical of America’s economic system. In “Nickel and Dimed: On Not Getting By In America,” Barbara Ehrenreich documents her attempt to live on a minimum-wage salary. But what the student found disturbing, aside from the book’s multiple profanities, was a religious reference. The author describes Jesus Christ as a “wine-guzzling vagrant and precocious socialist.”
Dennis Taylor, the student’s father, said
Meanwhile, the Obama Justice Department has filed suit against a Chicago school district that denied a Muslim middle school teacher three weeks unpaid leave to make a religious pilgrimage to Mecca. The teacher had completed a year of service when her first request was made in 2008. The teacher resigned after a second request was denied. Obama’s Justice Departmentwants her reinstated with back pay,and is also seeking compensatory damages.
Merry Christmas, folks,from Obamaville USA. Peace be upon him; praise be his name.
